in Food and Drink by James Hills
Typically when we think of summer grilling season, the featured meat is steaks, burgers, sausage - and maybe chicken.

What to Pack for a Day Exploring Off Road Desert Trails

in Stuff by James Hills
The desert is an amazing place to explore but it requires proper planning and preparation in ways that most other hikes or off road excursions don't.
